Julian Salvi says the 22-16 Aviva Premiership win against Harlequins will set Leicester Tigers in good stead as they head into Europe this week.

Salvi, September’s Goldsmiths Player of the Month, says it was just what the team were looking for ahead of their European Rugby Champions Cup campaign kick-off against Ulster Rugby this Saturday.
The Tigers back-rower said: “You want to go into Europe on the back of a confident win, and I think we did that with a good team performance and some decent rugby.
“Moving into Europe on the back of a good solid win will do us the world of good and puts in good stead to go at it this week.”
Tigers supporters voted Salvi their Goldsmiths Player of the Month for September with the result announced during half-time of Friday’s game.
And he says his prize, a Goldsmiths voucher, will provide a perfect present for his wife Emma, who is currently 34 weeks pregnant.
“It’s really nice to get the Goldsmiths Player of the Month and I’m really grateful to the supporters and to everyone who voted,” he said. “I’m sure I’ll get my wife something nice when the baby is born.”
